Just wondering what people's views are .
Thanks in advance
I'd advise you to do as much research as possible before getting one, check out the caresheets on here and on the chameleon forums. They are more of a look but don't touch type of pet as they get stressed easily and a lot of them don't want to be touched, so yes they sometimes will bite or look like they are going to. Screen cages are the best option for housing as they need a lot of ventilation.
